* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Nathan's mother is [[Series/GameOfThrones Lady Stark]], and his father is Dexter Fletcher from PressGang, BugsyMalone, etc.
** Kelly (Lauren Socha) was in a well-known Arctic Monkeys [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2W_hEdt1Xes music video]]
** Simon (Iwan Rheon) played Moritz in the UK version of the Broadway musical ''SpringAwakening''
*** He will also be playing [[BastardBastard Ramsay Snow]] in [[Series/GameOfThrones Game Of Thrones]].
** Nathan (Robert Sheehan) was in ''{{Film/Cherrybomb}}'' with RupertGrint
*** Robert Sheehan was also in ''Series/YoungBlades'', a short SoBadItsGood series where he plays an unbelievably {{Camp}} Louis XIV.
*** He was also in the Irish-Australian series ''Foreign Exchange'', which most Irish people of a certain age will remember. He played the main character's [[{{Nerd}} nerdy]] best friend Cormac.
** Sally, Tony and Psychotic!Tony were all in ''Ultimate Force''
** Sally is played by Alex Reid, who portrayed Beth in ''Film/TheDescent''.
** The cop who busted Curtis for drugs (Michael Obiora) was in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E10Blink "Blink"]], also playing a cop.
** Perry Benson (who played Bev) was Meggy in ''ThisIsEngland''.
** Josef Atlin, who played Gary, may be recognised by fans of PeepShow for playing the kid who mugged Mark Corrigan in series 3.
*** He's also [[Series/GameOfThrones Pyp]].
** [[{{Spaced}} Brian]] played the medium in Series 3 Episode 8.
** Lola is Kathy Nightingale from ''Series/DoctorWho'' classic [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E10Blink "Blink"]].
** [[Series/TheThickOfIt Blinky Ben]] is one of Finn's potential dads.
** His actual dad is [[PeepShow The Orgazoid]]. or [[Series/GameOfThrones Yoren]].
** Simon loses his virginity to [[FreshMeat Vod]].
* LifeImitatesArt: When they joked on ''MockTheWeek'' that everything the channel four writers were coming up with ended with "crossed with ''Series/{{Skins}}''" it looks like they may have been right... ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' [[XMeetsY crossed with]] ''Series/{{Skins}}'' anyone?
** Actually before the show aired the E4 voiceovers would promote it during the end of every Series/{{Skins}} type show and superpower movie by mentioning how it is an XMeetsY of the just shown show/movie.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Simon was supposed to go evil in series one episode five, betraying the gang and forcing them to kill him at the end of the series, but the actor was so likable that it was rewritten.
** Ironic considering his [[BastardBastard role]] in [[Series/GameOfThrones Game Of Thrones]]
** Superhoodie [[spoiler: was never intended to be Future!Simon at all. There used to be a video on E4's website of Simon filming a video and being confronted by Superhoodie during it. Superhoodie spoke in a different voice/accent to Simon and gives a cryptic warning about watching the gang before running off. Presumably the writers thought of the Future!Simon idea while writing Series 2 and just ran with it.]]
